Following the sudden release of Robert Kyagulanyi’s armored car by Uganda Revenue Authority, the National Unity Platform President has said that he won’t drive the car until his experts check it; he also stated that the act by the tax body on President Museveni’s orders shows how the head of state is mismanaging the nation.
“We are subjecting the car to further scrutiny and inspection before we use it,” Said Bobi Wine.
The car Toyota land Cruiser UBJ 667F was two months ago impounded by URA citing that the car was undervalued.
While commenting on the act of President Museveni ordering the tax body to return the car Kyagulanyi says that the President continues to treat the country as personal property.
“Gen. Museveni continues to misrule our nation and to treat it as his personal property. He has turned himself into the law. He ordered for the impounding of the vehicle without regard to the law, and has now ordered for its release without making reference to the law. This is how he is treating all of us citizens., Gen. Museveni should have no right to order for the release of my vehicle before I pay the taxes! URA and indeed all government institutions must be independent and not operate on the wishes and whims of anyone,” stated Bobi Wine
He also said that the move was a deliberate attempt to divert them from their most critical assignment to liberate the nation.
“The regime has been deliberate on engaging citizens in insignificant debates so as to turn their focus away from the rigged election, the murders and abductions and such other evils. As I speak, the abductions of our people are still ongoing. Our people are still being tortured to death while others are being held incommunicado. This very day, comrades who are at Kitalya were meant for a ruling on their bail application, but the regime deliberately refused to bring them without giving any reason, while other cases were ongoing. Therefore comrades, there must be nothing to divert us from the most critical agenda,” posted Bobi Wine.
